Skrócony opis: (tylko po angielsku)

The course focuses on theoretical and practical approaches addressing

the complexities involved in managing diversity in organizations and

communities. It is informed by an integrative orientation that bridges a

social psychological perspective with a constructionist perspective. The

theoretical approaches are demonstrated through empirical research and

projects conducted in "real life" settings. The course also provides basic

tools to diagnose diversity needs in organizations and communities and

design an intervention which can respond to these issues.

The 21st century features growing diversification of organizations and

communities in most parts of the world due to migrations trends and

globalization. In most societies this transition occurs concomitantly with

existing or emerging intergroup tensions, social divisions and inequalities.

diversity management in organizations and communities constitutes an

important research and practice arenas in the current era. The course

discusses two main approaches to managing diversity – the essentialist

(social psychological) and the emic (constructionist), their interface and

practical ways addressing the complexities involved in managing diversity

in organizations and communities. The following topics will be addressed:

1. Introduction: why studying diversity? Mapping the field of diversity in

societies, organizations and communities

2. Theoretical approaches to diversity and its management

3. Intersections of diversity

4. Methodological approaches to studying diversity.

5. Variety of contexts for studying and practicing diversity

6. Empirical demonstrations: central findings on diversity management

in organizations and communities

7. Insights to best practices

8. Hands on: Implementing diversity management in organizations and
